After premiering in January at Sundance, Blumhouse’s survival thriller, Sweetheart, will finally be released.

Directed by J.D. Dillard (Sleight), the film stars Kiersey Clemons. It will be available on digital and on-demand October 22 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

The official synopsis: Jenn finds herself completely alone on a small tropical island after her boat goes down. By day, every ounce of her strength, cunning, and courage is strained simply to find food, outlast the elements, and survive. But as the sun sets, Jenn’s waking nightmare inexorably grows into terror, when a malevolent force comes to stalk the jungle for prey.

Emory Cohen, Hanna Mangan Lawrence and Andrew Crawford also star.
